The 19-year-old suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was charged Monday while in his hospital room with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill. He could possibly receive the death penalty.
In serious but stable condition at Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, Tsarnaev is unable to talk because of a gunshot wound to the throat. However, he answered questions by writing.
Officials, who spoke on a condition of anonymity, said Tsarnaev appeared to have been influenced by a radical type of Isalm but did not seemed connected with any Muslim terrorist groups.
Also, in what authorities are calling an “Al Qaeda-sponsored” attack tied to terrorists in Iran, two other suspects are charged with plotting the derailment of a VIA passenger train running between Tornoto and New York.
A 35-year-old Toronto man and a 30-year-old Montreal man face five charges, which include conspiring with a terrorist organization.
